Refuge Chamber for Tunneling
The requirements of a mine refuge chamber can be as diverse as those of the mine itself. A comprehensive risk assessment or the mine conditions may for example demand a specially designed refuge chamber or additional features. Dräger has decades of engineering experience of allowing chamber solutions to be tailored to the individual requirements of a mine and of providing a worldwide service network for immediate support. This helps to reduce the cost of ownership.
In emergency situations, miners taking refuge need a life support system they can rely on and which protects against danger. This might include protection against heat stress or rockfall, the uncompromised provision of safe and clean breathing air or gas detection system, and a reliable, independent electrical system. Dräger’s engineered chamber solutions offer the highest quality and safety standards for all of its various internal and external configurations to keep miners safe during emergencies.
The local regulations around the world are as individual as the mine requirements. Dräger’s engineered chamber solution offers the highest flexibility to meet the required standards and norms. Regardless of whether the requirements are imposed by official regulations, mine requirements, or environmental conditions, Dräger refuge chambers provide the highest levels of flexibility in their design. The concept considers all requirements, for example life support systems, electrical systems, and general conditions.
